A Delicate Exaltation

This place where I exist

I’m afraid to break it

A delicate exaltation

An underserved reprieve

From thoughts too heavy

Too ugly, too vast

Too cumbersome

For someone like me

For anyone

To carry

This place where I exist

Is rare

Is foreign

Is exceptional.

This is a place

That I have designed

My mind

My heart

My soul

A fragile place.

A magical place.

A safe place.

-Elle
